As the owner of self-publishing company MindStir Media, I’ve often come across people who have amazing stories to tell but don’t have the spare time or the technical skills to tell them.
This is where the negroes come in.
Whether you’re too busy to write a book or just not confident enough as a writer, hiring a ghostwriter allows you to tell your story the way you want. Ghostwriting a book can change your career as well, due to the value it brings to you and your brand.
It’s still your book, your ideas, and your name on the cover, but not your time to write it.
Here are some best practices for creating the best ghost book.

Connect with your nigger
When you are looking for the ghostwriter who is in the best position to bring your book to life, you need to connect with them.
Most likely, you will not marry the first person you date. Likewise, you shouldn’t feel like your first candidate should be your nigger.
There are a lot of factors to consider when starting to think about a good ghost writing partner. This could include their background, previous work, areas of expertise, or even how you personally connect with them. Rule of thumb: don’t trust a project as important as writing a book for someone you wouldn’t like to golf with.
Instead, pick a ghostwriter like you would hire an employee – interview candidates, consider follow-ups, and maybe even work on a sample chapter together. You have to get good results and take advantage of the partnership to make it work.
Communicate your vision and ideas
If a quarterback slams the ball, his catcher executes a route depending on the play that was called. If instead the receiver ran where he wanted, he would likely never get a reception and the quarterback’s job would be tough. To score big you need to be on the same page as your team. This also applies to ghost writing.
You hire someone to write your book when working with a ghostwriter, but you have to keep in mind that they can’t know exactly what’s going on in your head all the time. For this reason, you need to communicate your ideas. If you don’t, your nigger will guess a lot, and the results will be poor in your eyes – and it won’t be your nigger’s fault!
To avoid this, I recommend that you work with your ghostwriter to write a detailed outline of the book before you begin the writing process. This way, you both have an idea not only of where to start and where to finish, but also what every step you need to take along the way. In these situations, sometimes your plans can change, but you will never stray too far from the path if you have a good track record.

Be ready to participate in the process
One of the most common mistakes in ghostwriting comes from the writer who feels he has no role in the writing of the book beyond providing a topic for a talented ghost writer. That’s far from being the case.
Instead, writers need to be heavily involved in the process and ready to roll up their sleeves.
Ghostwriting is a secret weapon because it saves you time, but it isn’t. means you don’t spend any time with the project at all. If you do this, you are preparing for disaster.
Instead, you will need to be involved every step of the way. There are many different strategies for ghostwriting, but a successful model might look like this:
The writer and the negro carefully plan the book.
The negro writes a chapter or two.
The writer reads, edits and offers comments.
The negro applied the changes and wrote a few more chapters.
Repeat until the end.
Then, both parties rework the manuscript to refine it.
As a writer, if you’re willing to stay engaged throughout ghostwriting your work, it’s infinitely more likely to turn out the way you envisioned it. Even the best niggers can’t write your ideal book without support, so be prepared to actively participate or live with the results.
And that might sound like a lot of work, but many books take hundreds of hours to write. So if you put in an hour out of four or five for your ghostwriter to save, that’s a healthy relationship and you are still saving a lot of time using the ghostwriter’s service.

Make sure you know the topic
When writing a ghost book, make sure you know the topic of the book inside and out. After all, it is your delivered.
Imagine attending a book signing where a member of the crowd asks a question that you cannot answer. It’s not a good look, and it’s another great reason to be heavily involved in the writing.
The easiest way to make sure the book matches your ideas or expertise is to be the creator of the content. You should provide your ghostwriter with all the paint and brushes he needs and give a clear description of the image that is to be painted. Then a talented ghostwriter will deliver a book aligned with your ideas and vision.
But who does the research – the writer or the nigger?
This is a tricky question because in many cases it depends. If you’re writing a non-fiction book, you have to provide the ghostwriter with most of the research needed to write the book – that’s why they’re ghosts.writer and not ghost-seeker.
In some cases, when ghostwriting fiction books, your ghost writer will do some research to make sure their writing makes sense and is accurate.
Either way, understand that if you ask the nigger to do some extensive research, it will likely come at a price. It’s best to do the research yourself – you’ll save money and be an expert on it as well.
Be prepared to spend money on quality
Like any other service or product, good quality comes at a higher price.
Writing a book is a big deal. It can even change your life, and with such an important event, you shouldn’t skimp on quality to pinch the pennies.
It will always be best for you to work with an established ghostwriter (or writer) who has a proven track record, even if it comes at a cost.
That cost, as stated in this article, will be over $ 15,000 to find a decent ghostwriter, but the same article goes on to say that a good benchmark would be $ 40,000 for a book, if not more.
It doesn’t come cheap, but investing in quality writing is an investment in your future and your professional career.
Don’t take it lightly.
